Nicki Minaj Says She Meek Mill Have Been Close For A 'Very, Very Long Time'

Just so you know.

Nicki Minaj has been busy trying to run the rap game for the past few years -- guess that's why her feet hurt -- but, following the release of her third album, The Pinkprint, the YMCMB rapper is taking some time off to enjoy life.

And yes, that also means hanging out with Meek Mill.

In a new interview with Vogue, Nicki explains that she's really enjoying single life.

"I’ll just say that I haven’t had this much fun in years," she said, adding, "I am partying, and I am freer, and I am just enjoying myself and my life."

Over the past few weeks she and Meek Mill have posted several photos with each other on Instagram, fueling rumors that they're now an item.

"Sometimes we hang out, and when we hang out, we have fun," she said coyly. "This is what I want to say about him: People think for some strange reason that we just started becoming friends recently. We’ve been friends for a very, very long time, and he’s been around for a lot of things that I’ve gone through. And that’s all I’ll say about that."

Nicki said that she no longer feels the need to seek everyone's approval, and instead she's simply having fun.

"This year, I decided that I’m going to live my life. Because I love making music but I need to live my life, and I need to realize that people are going to talk about me no matter what," she said. "

"They don’t know who I am. And it’s kind of sad because I’ve done so much for so many people, but I haven’t taken a moment for Onika. But this year, I’m taking a moment before the tour."

"I’m going out and having fun because none of this is guaranteed. I’m not living my life for social media and people who don’t know anything about me anymore—for them to give me a stamp of approval. It doesn’t matter to me anymore."

And she says she definitely will not be rapping when she's 50. She plans to be traveling the world with her family instead.
